$305B in cost of congestion annually
1.35 million people are killed on roadways annually
Do not account for vulnerable road users
Velodyne Lidar’s Intelligent Infrastructure Solution (IIS) is a breakthrough hardware+software technology designed to solve some of our most challenging and pervasive infrastructure problems.
Now, with Velodyne’s award-winning lidar sensors combined with Bluecity’s powerful AI software, users can monitor traffic networks and public spaces to generate real-time data analytics and predictions.
This will improve traffic and crowd flow efficiency, advancing sustainability and protecting vulnerable road users in all weather and lighting conditions.
Advanced analytics in real time to predict, diagnose, and address road safety challenges without post-processing.
Detects all road users including vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists.
Cost-Effective & Easy Installation
A single sensor, installed on a traffic pole, can provide coverage for an entire intersection or section of highway.
Lidar cannot be used to identify facial features, eliminating privacy concerns of camera-based systems and preserving public trust.
Works in all weather and lighting conditions – 24/7, 365 days a year.
“The acquisition and analysis of mobility data is crucial to integrating autonomous vehicles, and creating a safer pedestrian and cycling environment. Velodyne’s Intelligent Infrastructure Solution captures data on various traffic activity including vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists in all types of environmental conditions. We envision the solution as playing a critical role in helping us create a safer environment for all road users.”
“Rogers collaborated with Velodyne and Bluecity on a traffic monitoring system in Kelowna, B.C., which was Canada’s first 5G smart city project. The initiative showed how this lidar-based solution can track near-misses of accidents at problematic intersections. By using the solution’s data, municipalities can do the critical work of improving roadway safety in a cost-effective and efficient way.”
“We are excited to partner with Velodyne in order to bring to market this breakthrough solution that collects and analyzes detailed traffic data about road users while preserving anonymity and trust. We believe that Velodyne sensors are best-in-class and this solution will be a game changer for the smart city industry.”
